Electric Driving the Hypermarkt

Not only are electric cars increasingly mainstream, by 2016 likely all the flagship vehicles in the world will be at least a mild hybrid. Joining the bleeding edge hypercars that are already electric. Look how far we have come since the Honda Insight pioneered the technology in 1999.
The 2014 Ferrari LaFerrari retails for $1.3 million US before HST. It totals only 960 HP with 160 of that eclectically charged.
The 2015 Porsche 918 is only about $900,000. The big deal is that it is a plug in hybrid, a true electric car. IMHO it was hit like many Porsche models with a bit of an ugly stick.
The BMW i8 is a bargain at only $138,000. Even more interesting is that it is can travel 22 Km only using the battery. Also of the three carbon fiber beauties it is the acknowledged beauty Queen.
